18 weeks and a few days

These weeks seem to fly by! This week I have still been sick but I seem to not be losing my mind as much! It is doable. I mostly get sick in the morning and then just mildly queasy through the remainder of the day. My shortness of breath seems to be getting better too! This week Kevin was in Vegas from Sunday through Wednesday for work and it was my first time EVER to be alone that long! I have always had roommates or lived with my family. I am not so much of an "independent woman" BUT I will say that this time apart seemed to fly by! Luckily I did not pass out or feel like death while he was gone. On Sunday my great neighbors brought me over some AMAZING homemade chicken noodle soup. I seriously ate on that for the whole time Kevin was gone! Thanks Brian and Lyne! On Tuesday night my great friends Billy and Emily had me over for some CRAZY GOOD spaghetti and a movie...although me and Emi ended up talking through the whole thing. Sorry Billy : ). So, much love to good friends! I feel so blessed to have such great people in my life that seem to really care!

Fun fact! I am finding out what baby Rock is on Wednesday!

Yesterday my bestie Zip , her good friend Amanda, and I went to the new Buy Buy Baby in Frisco... I have to say I am still a Babies R Us fan. When we got back to her house she gave me a pair of maternity jeans.... HOLY MOLY! These things have changed my life! So comfortable. I am not so big yet but they don't put all that pressure on my belly like my button jeans do. I decided I needed another pair that was a little dressier too so my mom and I hit the mall today! And got a pair of these jeans:
Secret Fit Belly(tm) 5 Pocket Boot Cut Maternity Jeans

And two of these tops:

:Short Sleeve Scoop Neck Maternity T Shirt
I am so excited! I have been eyeing these cute fitted shirts!
Last but not least I also needed a MUCH bigger bra and I got this gem! It's a spanx maternity bra that fits like a dream!
SPANX Bra-llelujah Full Support Molded Cup Underwire Maternity Bra

All and all it was a great little shopping trip! Thanks for helping me out mom!

Anyone interested in some belly pics??? Here it is! I am also including one of me and ALL my babies b/c they are my sweet loves too!

Week 16/17 in review WARNING - if you don't like vomit stories don't read!

Hello there fellow readers! Hope all is well in blogger world today! Just wanted to shed a little more light on my INSANE and CRAZY pregnancy! I keep this a joke? Is God around the corner laughing at me? Maybe it's that other guy??? Either way I have a few stories to share from just ONE eventful week in my life these days. I had an AMAZING 15th week! A week and a half of bliss! But once I hit 16 weeks things started going downhill and fast!

Last Thursday morning I was teaching a solo to a little girl and I kept getting really winded and dizzy. My heart was racing and all I could do was teach her a few steps and sit down until she picked them up. This repeated for an hour! The mom came and talked to me about this but all I could think was I was about to PASS OUT! I DIDN'T...BUT I was worried about driving so I sat at the studio a little longer until I felt OK to drive. I hopped on 121 and for anyone that lives in McKinney it's all construction and traffic. Well, without w
arning I proceeded to vomit all over myself! I grabbed a tiny juice cup and tried to get most of it in there. I had to balance driving and puking after at least 1 or 2 mins of this juggling act I finally found a place to pull over! Like I said SOMEONE must be watching and laughing!

Saturday Kevin offered to take me shopping for a new dress. I told him I wanted to go to Kohls! We had stopped off at Target first where I couldn't even walk around for longer than 2 mins before sitting down in the middle of the store to catch my breath! He asked me if I wanted to go home. I said "Are you kidding me? NO! I am getting a new dress!". We went on to Kohls and since I was short on breath I worked quick! I picked out 4 things to try on in about 5 mins. Went into the dressing room and after the second outfit I could barley breath... I was getting dizzy too. I told Kevin "We need to leave... NOW". We barely mad
e it out of the store before I got sick right there in front of the store! Kevin stood watch for me as I embarrassed myself for the next 10 mins! Just wish I could figure out who it is that thinks this is so funny!

I did end up in the hospital this week! Hang out with me and your not going to have a dull moment... well maybe many dull moments but there will always be something entertaining around the corner! I called my doctor to tell them how severe my shortness of breath was and they sent me to the hospital! Good news! I am all good! I was extremely dehydrated... DUH! I could have told them that! They gave me an IV to re-hydrate me and sent me on my way.

There were some more stories from this week, but I figured I would share the most entertaining ones with you all! I leave you with my hospital pic... I will post a belly pic soon! I PROMISE!

15 weeks and some change

This past week has been pretty eventful, and by eventful, no... I did not get shot by a firework or even get anywhere near fireworks, fun parties, and for that matter, people in general... Nope, I pretty much stayed home ALLLLLL Weekend! Fun huh? Here is the low down:

Thursday I had to miss work b/c I BLACKED OUT...yup... while taking a shower. It was the scariest thing! I managed to get out and make my way to my bed where I preceded to cry and panic b/c my heart was racing, I was dizzy, and all I could see were little black dots! This was shortly followed by an intense migraine (not related). I can thank all these tropical storms for that one! For those who don't know me I get migraines with the rain. Usually 24 hours or less before it rains. There was no rain in the forecast either...but like clockwork it rained!

I did get out the next day to help with the Vigilante's game where the Youth dancers got to perform half time with the DVD's! They were so cute and sweet! One of the little girls ask me "Miss Liz, why aren't you dancing?" while another little girl interrupted me before I could answer saying... "Because she's got a BABY BUMP!". I have never laughed so hard! I ended up leaving after halftime b/c low and behold another front was moving in the next day and I had the WORST migraine again! YUCK!

I was sick all day Saturday too. Kevin and I just had a movie day in bed... it was nice.

Sunday while everyone was getting on with their fun and exciting fourth of July I was home sick...AGAIN! Sunday morning Kevin called me on his way home from the gym asking what I wanted him to bring me for breakfast (he's the best) and ALL I WANTED was cinnamon rolls! He brought me these little cinnamini things from MacDonald's. They were pretty good! I ate them and was drinking my orange juice when I leaned back on the couch to say "Man, that really hit the SPOTaaahhhhhbllaaahhhhh" and right there projectile breakfast all over myself... I have never seen Kevin move so fast to get me a trash bag. When I start I can't stop. I couldn't even get up to get to the bathroom! Poor Kevin is so sweet to take such good care of me! I took a nap and later that afternoon Kevin was so board so we went down the street to my parents house to swim. My dad made enchiladas for dinner (which I loved eating) but unfortunately I could keep them down. Words of advice- enchiladas DO NOT taste as good coming up as they do going down! On that note...I went on to bed.

I worked on Monday and went to see Toy Story 3 with my family after work... which was so cute! Loved Ken! He was my fav! I got sick Monday night after me and Kevin went to bed... BUT! Knock on wood, I have not been sick since then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3 days! I think that is a record!

Tuesday I went to the Doctor and got to hear Pebbles heartbeat! I teared up a little. I have a baby GROWING INSIDE ME! AMAZING! Because I have been so sick I have only gained ONE lb in the last month! My bump has not grown since my last pic so I think I will wait until next week to post a new pic! OH.... and I have my sono appointment set to find out the sex of the baby! August 4th! CAN NOT WAIT! Any guesses as to what it may be??

Think that's it for now!
